Upcoming runners 26 and 28 May 2017

Friday 26 May 2017
 

SILK ROUTE
Race 5: Class 4 - 1200m

Horse no: 8
Time: 8.20 PM
Jockey: M NUNES (54.5kg)

Hard Spun (USA) x Iron Kogu (JPN) 4yo gelding. He seems in good order, he galloped well earlier in the week. He's drawn a nice barrier in barrier 4; on paper there are a couple of horses who will probably roll forward. If we begin nicely from our decent barrier and get into a nice spot just behind the leaders he should be able to run well - he's carrying a nice light weight and hopefully he'll be up in the finish.


 

Sunday 28 May 2017
 

OTTAWA
Race 2: Initiation - 1400m
Horse no: 4
Time: 1.50 PM
Jockey: M RODD (56kg)

Foxwedge (AUS) x Marie Soleil (USA) 3yo gelding. James is happy with him going into the race on Sunday - he's been working well during the week. He's drawn wide again, which will make things a little tricky. From that barrier, and the first time over 1400m we will have to ride him patiently, Michael (Rodd, jockey) is good at getting into a good spot. We're really looking forward to getting him over 1400m, he's shown he wants to get over some more ground and hopefully he'll finish off the race well.

 

MAGNUM
Race 8: Stewards Cup (Group 2) - 1400m
Horse no: 4
Time: 5.00 PM
Jockey: V DURIC (57kg)

Per Incanto (USA) x Sound Lover (NZ) 4yo gelding. He's in good condition, looks well, and he's a good weight. Mick Lockett, who does most of his track work, was pleased with his gallops - he's worked nicely and moved well - during the week. It's a strong race with proven group horses but we've got a nice inside barrier in barrier 1 and he should get a nice run round just behind the leader. We'll let Vlad ride from there and hopefully he'll run a good race.
